Biographical Quotation

“My husband had been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints one year previous to our marriage. His religion was strange and new to us, and some of our friends seemed to feel sorry that I had fallen in with such a society of people.” — “No Place to Call Home”
